I probably should have gotten in a bit closer for you to see the detail of the heels -- they're stacked for a classic but funky look, in my opinion. And see how they just want to walk -- They're by a company called Joe Sanchez and inside they say "Keep on Walking." I'm not going to claim they're wonderfully comfortable -- you'd look at the heel and know I'd be lying -- but they're not bad at all. Above all, even if these shoes are out walking in the garden, they are truly a fall shoe, and wearing them this week meant I was really acknowledging the season. In fact, I'm almost ready to embrace it, not just acknowledge it. After all, look at some of these colours:
A miscanthus in its full autumn glorySedum spectabile 'Autumn splendour' -- I've been waiting years for mine to finally put on a good show -- this year they're making me very happy -- that's the gentian sage providing the spark of blue in the lower left.
And another plant that's finally hit that maturity point where it's beginning to do what I hoped. Parthenocissus tricuspidata, aka Boston ivy
, but I'm not sure which one, and haven't got the time right now to look it up -- sorry! It's just beginning to turn and I hope it will flame red all the way up that trunk
